Elections, Lebanon

Forecast: Partly Smoky With a Chance of Cabinet

Sources are now reporting that a cabinet deal is in its terminal phase, as Yoda Bey puffs triumphantly about the oncoming billows of white smoke.

Indeed, the Lebanese dailies have been positively inundated by a downpour of meteorologically-flavored political prognostications, forecasting “glimmers of optimism” peaking out from the dark clouds of pessimism and negativity.

Furthermore, you’ll be pleased to know that sources close to Nabih Berri are hinting that the sunshine of national unity may finally emerge after the long arctic darkness of Lebanon’s languid summer of discontent.

Get those sunglasses out, people. Tomorrow just may be a scorcher.


There’s been a good response to the poll on government priorities, with around seventy people having voted already. Once we get past the one hundred mark, I’ll tabulate the results and post them. If you haven’t already voted, what are you waiting for?

  1. We might actually get an indian summer between the naming of ministers and the ministerial declaration’s storm?

  2. Why has the orange Tsunami finally turned into a light breeze? I still have my doubts.

  3. I don’t think so Q…The smoke was from the Ergileh that Yoda was puffing with a touch of Bekaa grass…

    To get the real pulse one has to read the Syrian Watan or Tishreen or Cham Press…I hear the white smoke is “cultivated” there…
